Opportunity. When I look back in my life, I think about the opportunities that came my way, that I acted upon, or the ones I let slip by. I realize, as a younger man, I thought I had all the time in the world. Boy was I wrong. (Words I wish I could tell myself then). Yes you have to weigh every situation. Does it help, or hinder? If you don’t do this thing, will you regret it? The one thing I wish I would have had a better understanding with would be my health. As I got older, I didn’t exercise, eat right, or get any type of supplements. We have a tendency to squander health, believing we will never change, or we can start tomorrow. We believe that being 40 is the new 30. But if there's one area the maxim doesn't apply to, it's health. I'm sorry to say that 40 is still the same 40 when it comes to your body – and it leads to the same 50, 60, 70 and beyond . You can live as though you're still 28, but the chances are that you'll feel the repercussions sooner rather than later. A depressing thought, I know, but a useful one to keep in mind. As a health coach, I invite all of you to split your focus 50/50: that's 50% on the here and now, and 50% on the future. You should be able to be 40 and fit, well into your 80’s. Start today, tomorrow will be here sooner than you think.
